7:00 am
>> cops and a multistate manhunt for a number of suspects. >> something like almost out of a hollywood movie but unfortunately this is real life. confirmation how police uncovered christopher dorner's deadly intent the person who cracked the case was his former partner. three paratroopers stuck in trees run off course during a reteen training exercise. rescuers cut them. the best shot of the night was made by a cheerleader. i'm against this decision. >> three cars! >> you're a senator? >> yes. >> that's awesome. i'm a luntieutenant in the kiss army. chuck hagel now has enough votes to become the nation's next defense secretary. >> senate republicans have found all sorts of shady associations in hagel's past. for instance he was once a senate republican. >> on "cbs this morning." >> my new book "killing jesus,
7:01 am
a history." >> he's going to be disappointed when he finds out there's already a book about that. welcome to "cbs this morning." breaking news in south africa a judge is granting oscar pistorius bail allowing him to go free until his trial. the olympian and double amputee is charged with the premeditated murder of his girlfriend on valentine's day. >> the decision comes four days after dramatic testimony at his bail hearing. emma hurd is at the courthouse in pretoria. >> after eight nights in a police cell and four days in court, oscar pistorius has finally been granted bail. the judge took two hours of talking before he delivered his ruling during which oscar pistorius wrung his hands and trembling in court. it is a relief for his family
7:02 am
but there may be mixed emotions for the friends and very wellives of reeva steenkamp. gina myers still can't believe her best friend is gone. she and reeva steenkamp were housemates but reeva's bedroom is empty, her things scattered, everything just as she left it when she went to spend that fateful night at her boyfriend, oscar pistorius' home. i can tell you miss her. >> so much. and i do go through a lot of stages of disbelief because it doesn't feel real. this is a very very weird sensation, because i feel broken inside. >> reporter: reeva had been living at the myers family home for the past six months and gina's father thought of himself as her second dad. >> there are two people that know what happened and one is reeva and one was oscar and i think one day oscar is going to tell the truth of what happened whether it's now, ten years, 20
7:03 am
years, i don't know but i think the truth will come out one day. >> reporter: oscar pistorius was back in court today for the fourth and final day of his bail hearing. the defense has argued that the charge against him should be manslaughter, not premeditated murder, because the athlete thought he was shooting a burglar. the judge said the prosecution had failed to demonstrate oscar pistorius posed a flight risk or public threat. during the hearing he also pointed to holes in the defense's case including oscar pistorius' claim that he had no idea that reeva steenkamp wasn't in the bedroom but still, he will be out on bail. we don't yet know all of the conditions. what's certain is that it's going to be many months before this case comes to trial. he could be back on the track training within the next few days. now to the big weather story in the middle of the country from texas to wisconsin, digging out from a powerful storm that is causing serious problems in minnesota this morning as snow
7:04 am
moves towards the great lakes. >> airlines have canceled or delayed hundreds of flights causing travel problems around the u.s. dean reynolds is in libertyville, illinois north of chicago. dean, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, charlie and norah. the storm seems to be tapering off a bit after dropping about three to four inches of snow around here but that was more than enough to create plenty of problems. as the wintry storm blew across illinois, its impact was painfully easy to describe. >> freezing and blowing, terrible cold. >> reporter: overnight traffic crawled to a near standstill here as the snow began to fall stranding some cars. it's part of the same massive system that crippled kansas. parts of that state got nearly a foot and a half of snow and that's not all. mix of thunder and lightning made for an unusual weather
7:05 am
event called thunder snow. across the midwest, icy, snowy roads created treacherous driving conditions. >> you can't see the road. ice, it's dangerous. >> reporter: on one slick road a mini van slid directly into a stoplight before the giant pole came crashing down and in the town of lawrence kansas a car erupted into flames as it tried to climb a snowy hill. for much of the day, a 200-mile stretch of a major highway in kansas, interstate 70 was closed. the plows were out in full force trying to clean up the mess. >> hoping we can get everybody to their destinations, from point a to point b without having to get stuck somewhere. >> reporter: hundreds of flights from kansas city to chicago were canceled overnight and traffic here in northern illinois is very slow going, and in fact the snow itself may be
7:06 am
diminishing but it's going to be replaced by something even worse, ice. charlie, norah? >> dean reynolds thank you. meteorologist jeff berardelli, where is the storm headed now is. >> it's moving toward the east. it's weakening but another storm will move up the eastern seaboard and may give significant snow to interior portions of new england so let's go to the maps and show you what's happening. we have some heavy snow in parts of michigan still heavy snow around milwaukee, wisconsin, moving north of there right now and some rain to the south but as we kind of look ahead into tomorrow, the worst of it looks to be probably starting midafternoon in new england, but notice along the i-95 corridor philadelphia, new york city, all the way to about boston it's mainly going to be rainfall however just interior from boston and boston is going to be a very close call it will be a mix of wet, heavy snow and rain and inland of that it looks like very heavy snowfall is
7:07 am
possible in vermont, new hampshire, the berkshires of massachusetts and also into maine. in fact we're expecting substantial snowfall accumulations probably as much as a foot of snow in the mountains of vermont and new hampshire, along maine and boston it's a tough call right now. looks like a mixture of snow and rain in a couple of slushy inches. >> we're now just one week away from automatic spending cuts that would include the biggest blow to the military's budget in nearly 30 years. president obama called republican leaders yesterday, bill plante is at the white house, bill good morning. >> good morning and good morning out west. that's right first high level contact no progress to report. an hour from now the president meets with democratic governors, the prevailing sentiment is probably what he's going to tell them that republicans will find it politically impossible to make it any kind of a deal. and the funding cuts gethit just one week from today.
7:08 am
with the pentagon and other departments already in crisis mode, the white house oannounced thursday the president phoned mitch mcconnell and house speaker john boehner but deliberately avoided saying more. was it simply to restate his position or to reach out to them in the interests of compromise? >> the president spoke with senator mcconnell and the speaker. i have no content to read out to you of those conversations. >> reporter: the two republican leaders pointed out this was the first time the president has reached out to them on the topic of the automatic cuts in two months since the end of 2012. the sequester is set to kick in a week from today will mean $1.2 trillion in across the board cuts. thursday, mr. obama argued to friendly radio hosts that republicans are standing in his way for the wrong reasons. >> their basic view is that nothing is important enough to
7:09 am
raise taxes on wealthy individuals or corporations and they would prefer to see these kinds of cuts and that's the thing that binds their party together at this point." >> reporter: but republicans say the president is raising false alarms. house majority leader eric cantor put it this way in a statement "president obama has said unless he gets a second tax hike he will be forced to let criminals loose on the streets, the meat at your grocery store won't be inspected and emergency responders will be unable to do their jobs. these are false choices." republicans also argue that agencies will have some leeway that the cuts may not be as drastic as the president has portrayed. people here do admit that it could take several months for the public to really feel the pain, which they say is only going to increase the damage. charlie, norah? >> bill, thank you so much. do we know if he called democrat ick? >> he did not call democratic leaders and that was the point republicans made perhaps he
7:10 am
should call democrats in the senate who they want to act. >> namingmajor garrett will be sitting in for bob schieffer on "face the nation" on sunday. what will this do for the. the and what does it mean? >> the president made the calls because the white house understands if it makes a continued public appeal to increase pressure on republicans, it can't not talk to those republicans it's trying to pressurize. these were perfunctory calls, they didn't kickstart or jumpstart any negotiations. they were a part of the play that the white house knows the president has to go through and republicans said wait a minute the senate democrats need to put something forward. house republicans and the previous congress did pass two alternatives to avoid the sequestration cuts. they'd like to see the senate democrats come up with something. until that happens house republicans aren't going to budge. >> congress is out there on vacation this week they're back next week. do you think there's any division within the republican party that republicans might
7:11 am
cave? >> there is division but no sign they're going to cave presently and the division is over defense cuts. several months ago republicans wanted to avoid the across-the-board cuts to protect the defense department. they're under pressure they can't put together to vote after raising taxes to give up spending cuts already in federal law. republicans bank on the cuts going into federal law and until the president comes up with an alternative set they'll grin and bear it until public pressure changes and they're not calculating it will change rapidly enough to avert the crisis before march 1st. >> the president seems to be in the driver's seat but is there political risk? >> he's becoming the latest budget drama in washington. republicans are for the most part adopting a strategy of near invisibility it's federal law, president needs to come one a remedy and the president has this risk by saying all the
7:12 am
terrible things could happen at march 1st and bill pointed out the white house concedes the terrible things should they occur won't happen rapidly, the republicans can say maybe the president cried wolf and he wasn't so certain about the drauptic dangerous terrible consequences he warned about. >> thank you. major garrett is hosting this week's "face the nation" his guests a panel of governors from both sides of the aisle and talk about fallout in their state from the automatic spending cuts, that is sunday here on cbs. this year's flu vaccine isn't a cure-all especially for older people. overall it works more than half the time but only stops the worst flu strain 9% of the time in seniors. dr. william schaffner is former president of the national foundation for infectious diseases. good morning, doctor. >> good morning, norah. >> help us understand this. i thought seniors are supposed to get the flu vaccine, they're the most vulnerable. we're finding out it's not that effective. what does this mean? >> seniors are always affected
7:13 am
the worst by influenza but they respond the least well to the vaccine and it's true this year against the dominant strain it was only about 9% effective in seniors but if you look at all the strains together it was 27% effective, still not something to write home about, but still preventing hundreds and thousands of infections and hospitaliations. >> how strong has this strain been? >> oh it's been a strong strain charlie. this h3n2 strain we have now causes really serious disease and seniors have been seriously affected this year. >> is the window closed for a flu shot? >> i think the window is closed this year, but we want to open it up again in the fall. we should still all get our influenza vaccines. we need a better vaccine but this is the one we have. we need to use it to prevent as many infections as possible. >> so doctor given that this year's shot may have been a bit
7:14 am
ineffective for seniors, do you think it will change for next year? >> well we changed the flu vaccine on an annual basis to keep up with the changing viruses, and it varies in its effectiveness from year to year. in those younger than aged 65 it was 50% to 70% effective, according to various studies. that also prevented an awful lot of influenza and prevented those folks from giving the flu to seniors. >> dr. william schaffner, thank you very much. >> my pleasure. deadly terror hits the heart of las vegas. ben tracy shows us the violent confrontation that horrified tourists. >> reporter: this is amateur video of the fiery end of the deadly shoot-out on the las vegas strip. police say at least one gunman driving a range rover opened fire on a maserati at a busy interception intersection in front of the bally's casino thursday morning the shoot-out was an escalation
7:15 am
of a fight that began at a nearby resort. >> the mazraatserati traveled through the red light at a high rate of speed striking several vehicles a local cab that also caught on fire as a result of the impact. >> reporter: the gunman hit the driver of the maserati setting off a violent chain reaction. the two people in the cab and the driver of the mazzraatserati were killed in the wreck. several bystanders were injured. tourists at local hotels were startled out of bed by the chaos. >> there was a loud boom and then i heard two other booms. i looked out my window i could see the fireball over here on the corner. >> reporter: police are still searching for the driver of the range rover who fled the scene. despite this violent show on the strip, authorities insist that tourists should still feel safe. >> what happened on the strip today will not be tolerated. these individuals will be found, they will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
7:16 am
>> reporter: for "cbs this morning," ben tracy, los angeles. time to show you some of this morning's headlines, "the los angeles times" says an l.a. police sergeant helped crack the christopher dorner case terry evans had a hunch dorner was the one who killed a young woman and her fiance in irvine california. dorner's name had come up in a phone call. evans knew dorner had a connection to the woman. the "wall street journal" says there's been a wave of car bombings in damascus syria, the human rights group says at least 90 people were killed in four strait separate attacks. "new york times" says several republican governors are cautioning to expand medicaid. supporters say it will save lives and create jobs. this is an interesting political story. >> very very interesting including in florida, where the governor has relented. and "the washington post" says the former owner of a

7:34 am
all have one thing in common the nike swoosh. >> totally ask for forgiveness and understanding. >> reporter: one would think that all the bad press would make nike shy away from its celebrity endorsers, but over time, the $25 billion corporation has done just the opposite. >> sticking by the big named guys can potentially still be good for business. >> reporter: "forbes" senior editor kurt bondenhausen covers the sports industry. he says nike is a victim of its own success. >> nike endorses so many athletes that if one of them does get in trouble, chances are it's going to be a nike guy. >> reporter: die key has $4 billion in endorsement contracts with athletes in many different sports and the bigger the star the less likely they are to sever ties. >> they built a golf division from scratch with tiger woods and now it's a $700 million something business for nike. it's hard to just kick tiger to
7:35 am
the side and say we're done with you, we're going to move on now. and i think that's why you saw him stick with lance armstrong for so long. >> reporter: even when nike moves on from an athlete it leaves the door slight lay jar. in 2007 nike dumped michael vick in the midst of the dog fighting scandal, but they resigned him when he regained his popularity in 2011 but oscar pistorius might not be so lucky. since nike may simply not view him as a big enough star. >> i think nike has seen the last of oscar pistorius. >> reporter: for "cbs this morning," michelle miller, new york. a new survey reveals the fish you buy may not be what you think. an environmental group says more than a third of the 1,200 samples it tested in sushi bars and grocery stores were mislabeled. the fish turned out to be lower quality and in some cases dangerous. you are bashie rangan is director of consumer safety and sustainability at "consumer
7:36 am
reports." thank you for joining us. >> thank you so much. >> what are the biggest offenders? >> red snapper tuna grouper. we found sole was also mislabeled, those tend to be the biggest ones. >> this can be a health risk too. >> it can be a health risk too. oftentimes cheaper fish are being substituted and sold as more expensive fish that's one reason but sometimes higher mercury fish are being substituted, in addition for white tuna escolar isn't a tuna but eel like fish that has an oil that can cause gastrointestinal distress can be substituted. >> so it may not be tuna and may be dangerous to you. >> that's right. >> you suggested as we began to talk about this there are a lot of studies and all say the same thing but nothing seems to be achieved by the studies. >> that's right, there's been a number of studies over the past few years including by "consumer reports" where we found similar findings.
7:37 am
the mislabeling of fish seems to be pervasive and nationwide. it's happening at grocery stores but the problem is worse at restaurants and sushi bars the worst of all. >> who is doing it the fishermen doing it is it the restaurants doing it? who is responsible? >> it's a great question. there are so many steps through the chain, 84% of our fish in this country is imported so there are many steps to getting here distribution systems, the tracking systems are not very good. fda is now stepping up surveillance based on dna testing, not just looking, and hopefully once that gets into place we're going to have some better tracking systems. >> i have a question do you think you would know if you were at a sushi place and you ordered white tuna and instead it was escarol, would you know the difference? >> you would not necessarily know the difference but if you see white tuna that should be a red flag and if it looks like a pale white fish that doesn't look like the tuna you're eating those are good cues for to you ask more questions. >> urvashi rangan thank you so

south africa. >> reporter: after eight nights in a police cell and four days in court oscar pistorius has finally been granted bail. the judge spoke for two hours before delivering his ruling during which time oscar pistorius packed friendly in the courtroom. this is a huge relief for him and his family. let me tell you some of the conditions of this bail. he's having to post $112,000, still a relatively small amount given that he earns around half a billion a year. he has to avoid his home. he has to avoid witnesses, and he has to surrender his passport. he's going to appear in court again on june 4th. it could still be many more months before this case comes to a full trial during which he has toop peer at a police station twice a week to register. but nevertheless he will be out of custody, and his track coach was saying he could be back training within a couple of days. the judge in the case criticized both the prosecution and the
8:02 am
defense for weaknesses in their cases. he said it would be up to the trial judge to decide upon the merits of the case. >> thank you, emma. a huge section of the midwest is dealing with its worst winter storm in two years. in some places, the snow fell so fast yesterday the plows could not keep up. this morning iowa, minnesota, wisconsin and michigan are all getting hit today. let's bring in meteorologist jeff ber rebecca jarvis deli of our miami station cbs 4. how bad could it get today? >> today the storm is weakening a little bit. snow and rain and a little ice. another storm is going to form sometime tonight and tomorrow along the eastern seaboard. it could be a significant snowstorm especially for inland portions of new england. it's worth noting this storm is going to be a warmer storm and so it shouldn't be as significant for the coastal cities from boston south to around new york city. first things first, let's show you what's happened on the radar and satellite. you can see rain to the south,
8:03 am
overall not a strong storm as we speak. however, it's going to crank up during the day tomorrow. notice in new york city it's mainly a rain event as we go through the day, heavy inland snow in new england. boston right on the edge very close call between rain and a mixture of rain and heavy snowfall. inland areas, in the mountains of vermont, new hampshire and even into maine and even the berkshires of massachusetts, a wet, heavy snow. as far as snowfall totals are concerned, we're looking at probably a foot plus in those ski areas. great news for the skiers and not so bad news for the travelers. boston could pick up a few inches of snow. all rain mostly in new york city. one week from today pope benedict will be in retirement. he still has important work to do this weekend and he's about to get a report on the biggest scanned ld of his eight year papacy. allan pizzey is in vatican city. >> reporter: the focus of attention is when the con claef will begin. he can issue a decree changing

the rule that requires a 15-day waiting period from the time his seat is vacant and is expected to do so. speculation and evidence has to why benedict decided enough was enough continues to swirl here with reporting focusing on an inquiry of three cardinals tint so-called vati-leak scandal. the dossier is reporting on a homosexual scandal. the pope will stay here for at least two months and then move back to vatican city a mere 17 miles away. in the outside world, the game of guessing and hoping over the next pope is in full swing. the obvious choice for celebrants of this religious festival in mexico is a latin american. with 42% of the world's 1.2 billion r0e78 man catholics, at

by sales, harlem shake would rank only 14th. >> this is clearly the most talked about, the most vibed about song in america. of course it should be number one on the hot 100. >> reporter: the billboard survey long included record sales and radio air play. recently it added streaming numbers from services like spotify and now youtube views. >> it takes into account both the official music video as well as fan videos that use the audio. >> reporter: the trend manager at youtube said it was fan videos that help carly rae jepsen's song "call me maybe" catch fire. >> it became a song that you did something fun with. >> reporter: until this week that once reflected in the charts. psy's "gangnam style" has been viewed more than a billion times, but it never reached number one. >> what you're saying is the charts were basically behind? >> i wouldn't have put it that

for nearly a decade a young missouri man has been in prison for a crime he says he did not commit. there's growing evidence pointing to his innocence, but he remains behind bars. "48 hours" has been following this case for seven years. erin moriarity shows us why he still faces a fight for his freedom. >> how do so many people get it so wrong that you end up in prison for 40 years for something you didn't have anything to do with. my life was taken because a jury made a decision based off of lies. >> reporter: 28-year-old ryan ferguson is trying to clear his name. >> reporter: did you have anything do with it?
8:18 am
>> absolutely not. i had nothing to do with it. >> reporter: he was accuse of killing a popular sports editor in 2001. there's no physical evidence that ties ferguson to the murder and he's always insisted he had nothing do with it even when interrogated as a teenager for hours. he was convicted pry playerly on the word of this man, a high school friend by the name of charles erickson. >> i looked up and ryan was over the victim. but >> reporter: but erickson says since then he's lied. >> help me out with this. somebody has said so you were making that up? >> yeah. >> for the first time exclusively to "48 hours" erickson explained why.
8:19 am
>> i lied to cover my own behind because i thought that -- you know, basically i thought that ryan was going to put it on me. >> reporter: erickson a heavy drug and alcohol abuser at the time of the murder says investigators convinced him that ryan ferguson was going to pin the murder on him so hi made up the stories using details he had read in the police reports and had been given toing him during the investigation. erickson is not the only witness who has recanted. so has this man, jerry tromp, a janitor who had testified he saw ferguson at the crime scene. >> if you see the individual, would you point to that individual, please. >> yes. >> reporter: tromp now says he lied. at a hearing held in april 2012.
8:20 am
>> i basically sold my soul to save myself. >> reporter: it is ryan ferguson's best chance of finally getting his conviction overturned. >> and erin moriarity joins us live from st. louis. erin, please explain. you've got both witnesses who recanted, no physical evidence to connect him to the crime. why on earth is he still in jail? >> remember, that testimony from those two witnesses, that was all that connected him to this case. this is a non-dna case. they're the most difficult to overturn. you need incredible evidence sometimes time 16 17 years, but it's unbelievable. recantations are not considered reliable. both of these witnesses admitted they lied at ryan's trial and they were under oath when they said that and they face perjury charges.

8:32 am
value. stephen brill has a piece in "time" magazine. he says it's a question of overcharging across the board. >> the problem is we have a health care system that was designed for the 1950s. now we're in the 21st century. we have to change because the disease haves changed, the treatments have changed. and we need to have a system for delivering care. we have no system for health care. we have a system for taking care of people who have disease, not a health care system. >> and the difference is? >> the difference is that we really have concentrated on making people well after they get sick. and we're very good at that. we're not very good at keeping people well over the long haul and having a system that's efficient and integrated across the entire united states and by keeping the cost down and doing away with the duplication of services, et cetera, we're getting what we pay for. >> one of the things you're doing at cleveland clinic is putting doctors on salaries and
8:33 am
a contract. >> right. >> how are doctors normally paid? >> for example, i have 73 one-year contracts. >> you're under salary and contract. >> all of us at cleveland clinic are. it's a straight salary. no pay for doing more or doing less. it didn't make any difference as a heart surgeon whether i did two operations or four. i took home the same amount of money. that's not true everywhere. the incentive is not to do more or order more tests, the incentive is to do what the patient needs. >> how are they judged? >> well, we do it on looking at their contribution to the clinic in terms of taking care of patients, about writing, teaching, researching, the entire contribution. we look at it every year. >> you guys set a goal to save $100 million a year. >> yeah. >> you've done it. you're doing it. how are you doing it? how is it a model for other hospitals? >> we think we've got to look at every step along the way. for example, we've asked ever bod toy look at what they do
8:34 am
whether they're doing an operation, for example, what kind of sutures do they use. it turns out you can take a silk suture and close a wound for $4 or $5 and then take a sapaller and close the same wounds for $400. we've been able to take the costs down of a profit ectomy. taking the prostate out. we've been taking the kocht of lung transplant down. by looking at the details, all the things we do along the way. >> there's no detail too small, too. you also had the gowns redesigns at cleveland clinic. >> right. we think when you go to a hospital or a health care system, there are really three things that count on quality. one is the clinical outcome, two is the emotional experience and three is the physical experience. we thought it would be very nice if we had something that actually was decent to cover you when you came into the hospital.
8:35 am
>> not those things where your backside hangs out. >> that's a good thing. >> darn right. >> there's also this. the administration single achievement in the first term was health care reform. what happened? why didn't they get the kinds of things you're suggesting? >> what they started out to do was to try and do access quality and cost. they did a great job on access. it brought another 30 million people to be covered for insurance, and they're doing better and better job about quality because we're reporting quality and being very trance apparent about it which we always have been. but they have not done a lot to reduce the cost of the care across the country. costs are going to continue to go up. so we've got to change how we do it. the whole system is changing across the united states. >> if you look ahead in terms of america's debt problem, the biggest single item is health care. if you don't do something about health care, you can't do anything about the debt. >> exactly. two-thirds of the cost of the
8:36 am
debt of the united states is health care and health care related. so we have to do something about that. and one of the things we need to do is begin to have people stay healthier. smoking, obesity, a third of the united states is obese, increase in cancers, increase in orthopedic problems, increase in the incidence of diabetes. >> you say we are our own worst enemies. >> we have to take responsibility for how we are. we can't live anyway we want and turn around and say take care of me. >> thank you, dr. toby cosgrove. >> my pleasure. the good times won't stop after the cos scars on sunday night. we'll
